This is a 2-in-1 aquarium, Back to the Roots AquaFarm combines 3-gallon fish tank with a vegetable/herb grow bed in one closed loop system that fits on any kitchen counter. This is the new model that comes with silent, submersible water pump with 360-degree view.
This fish tank uses aquaponics system, an ancient sustainable method of farming developed by the Aztecs. It’s really effective since it uses 90% less water compared to traditional farming methods and at the same time, it combines aquaculture with hydroponics. Back to the Roots Aqua Farm is the table-top version of that system, the water pump with inner tube will pump any fish waste into a grow tray that contains the plants. The plant roots acts as a natural biofilter where beneficial bacteria breaks down harmful ammonia in the waste into nitrites which can be absorbed as food by the plants. Any clean water left is circulated back into the tank. It is a smart system, isn’t it?
For every purchase of this unit, you will also get organic wheatgrass and basil seeds. Just in case you want to grow something else, it is recommended that you grow cilantro, parsley, mixed greens, arugula, or other varieties of basil.
Since AquaFarm is not suitable for fish that are sensitive to fluctuating ammonia and nitrite levels, it is recommended that you place betta fish, guppies, or Zebrafish inside this fish tank. You need to allow the system to take time to cycle and become balanced because it is completely biologically-filtered system. It has everything you need to get started, all you need to do is to feed the fish.
